Easter Week in Lorca

3 Apr

This fiesta is also known as the ‘Whites and the Blues’. Although there are other fraternities in Lorca, these two are the most important and there is a clear rivalry between them. The grand procession takes place in what is known as ‘La Carrera’. There are people dressed as Roman emperors, Egyptian troops, Roman gods in heavy carriages, chariots and on horseback, and sculptures of virgins with rich embroidered robes, luxurious standards, and so on. The standard of the ‘Prayer in the Garden’ (white), better known as ‘the floral cloth’, is noteworthy. The most highly anticipated floats include Cleopatra, carried on the shoulders of Egyptian troops, or the Antichrist, with its demonic appearance. There are also chariot races.

On Holy Thursday and Good Friday, the town is a splash of colour, gold and sliver in a Baroque procession where the Brotherhood (white and blue) try to be the best. The Whites gather round the Virgin of the Affliction, while the patron saint of the Blues is the Virgin of the Suffering. Easter week is one of the most spectacular and emotional fiestas here.

Religious devotion, art, colour and music combine in acts to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ: the processions. Members of the different Easter brotherhoods, dressed in their characteristic robes, parade through the streets carrying religious statues (pasos) to the sound of drums and music – scenes of sober beauty.

tripadvisor the best travel app to use when you travel to Spain

2 Apr

If you are coming to Spain we recommend you to download to your Iphone, android, Ipad or table Tripadvisor that is the world’s largest travel site and was downloaded an average of 25 times per minute in January 2012 and after Google Earth, is the world’s most downloaded travel app,

TripAdvisor is also available in 20 languages, making TripAdvisor the global go-to resource for mobile travel planning.

TripAdvisor also have a new HTML5 cross-platform app for ipad and android available in the Android market and the Apple App store. This is a free app that features a clean and simple interface, making easy the search for travelers, letting them access the millions of reviews and opinions on TripAdvisor. with this app and the GPS on the mobile device the travelers can see all the places nearby and compare prices and reviews also can see a list of top ranked hotels, restaurants, attractions etc.

Also over 50 percent of travelers intend to use their phones to find hotels, attractions and restaurants with Near Me Now where travelers can quickly determine what hotels, restaurants, and attractions are nearby their current location.

Anyhow there is a problem because this app needs data connection and the roaming is always really expensive when you come to Spain, but thankfully you can find mobile Internet solutions like tripNETer that offers a affordable and portable Internet solution for travelers in Spain, if you want to know more visit. www.tripNETer.com
